Today on Studio SN on You Tube: Using Clearsnap Surfacez inks to brayer and spot-color stamped images!

Sara Naumann Clearsnap brayered card project

This is a version of a card I taught at the CHA trade show in January—I love how easy these two techniques are and wanted to share them with you, too!

Here’s what you need:

Clearsnap Surfacez inks: Berry, Bluebell, Caribbean, Black (you can find these at Paper Wishes)

– White glossy cardstock

– White matte cardstock

– Mini brayer

– Stamps: Serendipity Flowers (Hot Off The Press)

– Silver brad

– Sheer ribbon

– Baby wipes

– Blank card

Here’s how to do it:

1. Brayer Berry on a piece of glossy white cardstock. Clean the brayer with a baby wipe, then brayer on Bluebell. Ink the long edges with Bluebell and glue to the center of the blank card.

2. Lightly brayer a smaller piece of glossy white cardstock with Bluebell, then stamp the floral image with Black.

3. Wrap a damp baby wipe around your index finger and tap it onto the Berry inkpad, then onto the largest blossom of the flower. Repeat to completely color all flowers.

4. Use the spot-coloring method to color the leaf and the swirls with Caribbean.

5. Mat the piece on white matte cardstock. Stamp “Be Happy” underneath and spot-color the flower. Add a silver brad through the center of the largest flower. Glue to the center of the card.

That’s it: Easy! And to see the video demo, just pop on over to Studio SN on You Tube!

Happy Wednesday!
